Learning at it's own pace is the best option to me. What you can do to learn any technique of photography, let's say you go on this page (actually it's a website that provides literally everything for a start) http://www.digitalcameraworld.com/2012/04/12/10-rules-of-photo-composition-and-why-they-work/
Read through the whole thing, then eventually you'll meet a word/technique you're unaware of, maybe click on it and see what it's all about, and you jump from one place to another, read a lot. Well, read a lot but also go out and shoot things.
Another interesting exercice is to shoot with a prime lens only, it's been nearly a year I shoot with 35mm and 50mm prime. The only time I changed was for star photography. Star Photography ? What an interesting field, but obviously has things to take into consideration such as motion tracking, location, foreground lightning
I dunno, are you a beginner ? In that case start getting to know how your sensor works, crop factors, dynamic range, how it works/ what it does.
For editing video, I remember when I first started editing (was like 5 or 6 years ago) it was on WMM but quickly I realized it couldn't provide what I wanted so I figured I'd be a pirate for the very first time and download Adobe Premiere. Edit the same way you do in WMM or other software, when you meet an issue, google it, and basically the more you meet issues, the better you get.
